FAIRBURY -- Four people were arrested on multiple charges after authorities served a search warrant in Fairbury Thursday morning.

At around 6:30 a.m. Thursday, authorities with the Fairbury Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and Saline County Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant at 1015 Fourth St. in Fairbury.

According to a press release, the warrant was issued after police received information that several pieces of stolen property were in the residence, along with drugs and weapons. During the investigation, officers were informed that several subjects in the residence were possibly armed.

During the search, four suspects were initially detained. After the residence was secured, officers conducted a search of the property. Officers located suspected methamphetamine, equipment and packing used to distribute narcotics, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, stolen tools, a stolen dirt bike, surveillance cameras, ammunition and numerous weapons that did not include a firearm.

The four individuals arrested, all from Fairbury, include Jeffery S. Stotler, 26, Dominic E. Konetzki, 21, Daniel L. Shibley, 25, and Shianne E. Bassett, 23.

All four were arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, theft by receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Stotler was also arrested for possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person, and Shibley had outstanding warrants out of both Gage and Jefferson counties.

No officers were injured during the investigation. Stotler received medical treatment by Jefferson County Ambulance Personnel for a minor head injury that occurred during a brief altercation after he tried to elude law enforcement when they made entry into the residence, the press release stated. The incident remains under investigation.

Officers are attempting to obtaining arrest warrants for additional subjects involved in the investigation.
